Beijing (CNN) – July 1 was the Communist Party's 90th birthday and China's top leaders celebrated in style.  Over 6000 guests and prominent party members gathered at the massive Great Hall of the People for the grandiose affair.  The stage was decorated with red flags and a jumbo version of the party's vintage hammer and sickle for President Hu Jintao's speech marking the milestone event.

At least, that's what was on local TV.  Unfortunately, we weren't able to attend the ceremony because we, and most other international TV media, had our invitations revoked at the eleventh hour.
